Moms are good.

Here's my summary of the weekend:

Friday: Awesome. (And I think we can all pat ourselves on the back and take some credit, because clearly our universe shifting power of positive thinking Happy Thoughts worked miracles.)
Saturday: Awesome.
Sunday:...Well...parts of it were awesome. (Two huge thumbs up for Nick Blackburn, back to form).  And honestly, when things got decidedly unawesome, I decided to skip the inevitable heartbreak and opted to get nostalgic and watch some season 7 Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVDs.  

Speaking of Season 7 BTVS...Buffy gives a lot of great motivational speeches in that final season.  I decided to watch them so I could pick up some pointers for the motivational speech/lecture I need to give to my fantasy Team Awesome.  Because, as a team, they decided to S-U-C-K suck suck suck this week.  I'm very disappointed in them.  They played fine this weekend, but everyone on my team apparently phones it in Monday-Wednesday for some reason. Adjustments have been made.  (So everybody cross your fingers that Luke Hochevar's two starts go splendidly this week as he replaces Sir Sidney Ponson in the KC line-up.) Hopefully that will light a fire under them.

I hope all the moms out there had a great day, and I hope tons of funds were made to fight breast cancer.  I'm all about being pro-mom and anti-breast cancer.

Speaking of moms....I helped my own mom fill out her All-Star ballots on-line this week.  In spite of the excessive amount of Twins lobbying I did, she decided to pick all Royals and Pirates.  (Except for Luis Castillo, because she loves him, and Jason Bartlett and A.J. Pierzynski, because I love them.)  Her reasoning was that the Twins will get enough votes from me. She wants to make sure the Royals and Pirates get some votes too.  She said if they see the voting results, she doesn't want them to be embarrassed.  My mom is very thoughtful like that.

Moms are the best - aren't they? I feel for you fanatsy wise ...I'm sucking towards the bottom in both my leagues as well... I had to make the big decision between Hochevar and Stults... well I went with Stults. So we shall soon see which helps out the most. Good luck....let the sucking stop.

This is my first year doing fantasy baseball, so I don't understand it completely, and because of that I definitely did a lot of losing in the first 2-3 weeks. Now my team seems like they might be getting on track, not in a dominant way, but just to the point where they don't completely suck.
Speaking of A.J... On our Fox channel in Chicago, they have a segment every other Sunday called Ask A.J. (They alternate weeks with Ask Ryan [Theriot]) And last night I found out that A.J. wears boxer briefs and he likes the tight feel on his legs. Quite frankly, it was a little more than I ever wanted to know about A.J.
